What we offer

Competenz helps thousands of learners gain the knowledge and skills they need to accelerate their careers with on-the-job training and apprenticeships in 37 different industries.

We work with teachers, career advisors, students, and parents to support and assist our future learners by providing careers information, unit standard and resources, assessment and moderation support, gateway, work experience and job opportunities.

Consent to Assess

Consent to assess is awarded to a school when it has shown it is capable of assessing against particular unit standards. Consent to assess is required for some unit standards but not all. Please check NZQA for details on your schools base scope to assess.

Workforce Development Councils manage the consent to assess process.

Moderation

The Workforce Development Councils are responsible for setting standards and managing a moderation system for schools who are assessing unit standards. Moderation ensures assessment against unit standards are fair and consistent.

Gateway and work experience

Do you have students interested in trades who aren't sure what path to take, or aren't ready to start working? Why not try our work experience programme? 

Competenz works with employers who are looking for apprentices and can help set up work experience and trials for students.

We want to make it easier for students to get a feel for trades. As a method of opening up industry doors, we are looking into setting up employer visits for students. They'll have a chance check out factories and equipment and ask questions about starting a trades career.

If you're interested in work experience or industry visits for your students, please contact us for further information schools@competenz.org.nz.

Gateway is not available for 2022.
